Okat is the solo project of award-winning Arizona musician Tyler Griffin. Drawing inspiration from minimalism, ambient, and drone, Okat focuses on dynamic melodies juxtaposed against drowning, tonal climaxes, breaking through genre labels to build music that is equally warm and yet somehow chilling.

Up to date [ Okat ] has released two titles [ Driftwoods ] that came out August 2011 and the most recent [ Sable ] which came out June [ 2012 ]. Both releases are exceptionally well done based on the quoted tags. Although Driftwoods is more of a mini EP type, 3 tracks with a total duration of 09minutes but you still might want to give both a thorough listen starting with the latest one [ Sable ]. TOTALLY WORTHY.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
